VICTORY IN THE SWAMP! Defense Keys Huge Win, 17-16

  • Gator fans play tribute to favorite son Tom Petty at game

The Tigers defeated the Gators 17-16 to earn their first SEC win of 2017.

Linebacker Devin White ended Florida's hopes when he batted down a fourth down pass by Gator quarterback Felipe' Franks.

LSU responded to the negativity on Saturday with its biggest win of the young season.

LSU coach Ed Orgeron met Monday with 12 players - at least one from each position group - to hash things out, and he sent those players back to their position groups for another series of meetings.

Much of the anxiety swirling around LSU's struggles can be linked to an offense that has been more blasé than exciting, but offensive coordinator Matt Canada finally got his crew to execute some different wrinkles vs. the Gators.

The Tigers opened up a 14-point lead early in the third on Etling's 2-yard touchdown pass to Tory Carter and looked like they might pull away.

On the Tigers' second drive, receiver Russell Gage took a hand-off on a jet sweep and raced around the edge for a 30-yard touchdown.

"Just gritty", LSU quarterback Danny Etling said.

The news channel added that while Jaitley had left the meet, Modi and Shah were still in the meeting. On Wednesday, Adityanath led the yatra along with Kerala BJP president Kummanam Rajashekharan.

"I'm just of proud our football team and proud of our coaching staff", Orgeron said.

It's year three of the Jim McElwain era, and Florida still is struggling to find ways to make plays, specifically at the QB position.

The two teams have shared barbs over the past year, dating back to Florida's decision to cancel their game due to concerns over Hurricane Matthew.

Perine keyed the drive with a 23 yard rush, after which he earned 15 more on an Arden Key late hit.

After a dismal first half that served as a stark reminder the Gators will continue to experience bouts of poor offensive play, McElwain's team was on the verge of tying the score with 1:45 remaining in the third quarter on Lamical Perine's second touchdown. Gage had 52 yards on six carries. Eddy Pineiro connected on the 25-yard field goal, 7-3. Pineiro's field goal extended the Gators' streak of not being shut out to 366 games, breaking the NCAA record set by MI from 1984-2014.

LSU WR Derrick Dillon was ejected at the 5:43 mark for targeting and missed the remainder of the game.

LSU hosts Auburn next Saturday at Tiger Stadium.
